College Football Week 2 Preview

Congrats on making it through your first college football Saturday of 2015. Now it is time to take an early look ahead to next Saturday’s slate of games. At first glance, the schedule is not as appealing as the first week schedule. That said, there are still a few matchups that are intriguing.

ESPN College Gameday will be in East Lansing as Oregon takes on Michigan State. The game will be most of the nation’s first opportunity to see Oregon’s new quarterback Vernon Adams. Veteran quarterback Connor Cook is back for Michigan State.

LSU heads to Starkville to take on Mississippi State. Mississippi State lost a lot of players from its great season a year ago while some experts expect LSU to compete for the SEC West. It will be an opportunity to gauge how good each team is.

Oklahoma heads to Tennessee to take on the Volunteers. The Volunteers have been building on top recruiting classes for quite some time while Oklahoma looks to get back to competing for a Big XII title.

Finally, Boise State takes on BYU. Both teams are coming off narrow victories. Boise State defeated Washington while BYU needed a Hail Mary to beat Nebraska. Unfortunately, BYU lost their starting quarterback Taysom Hill for the season due to injury. Backup Tanner Mangum threw the game winning touchdown against Nebraska.

All in all there is enough intrigue to look forward to college football’s week two schedule.
